The following is a quote that has often been on my mind:
“Women of God can never be like women of the world.
The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender.
There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind.
There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined.
We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith.
We have enough greed; we need more goodness.
We have enough vanity; we need more virtue.
We have enough popularity; we need more purity."
~Margaret D. Nadauld
Taking a stand as Women of God is never an easy thing. A video about fighting the plague of p*rnography recently came to my attention. There is an organization called Morality in Media that is teaming up with other similar groups to stand up and ask our government leaders to uphold the obscenity laws that are already in existence.
One woman in the organization who posted a video (VIEWER BEWARE: She does describe some of what she saw. I turned down the volume during that part of the video. I just want you to be aware before you view.) of her experience of being exposed to p*rn on an airline flight has been working hard to help remove filthy material from airlines, libraries, and schools.
Since she decided to take a stand and make the video, she has been bombarded with hate mail and even threats against her life.
Standing up for righteousness is never an easy thing! And in this day and age, it might just be dangerous. But when we choose to stand up and speak out, we also have God on our side, helping us, so we have no need to fear.
Right now, there is a petition we can sign which is asking for a Congressional Hearing on the issue of p*rnography. There are already laws in place that prohibit this kind of material in our country, but the laws are being ignored by those in authority-- those that we have elected to uphold the law! Will you join me in signing the petition here?
The content of the letter is this:
We should do all we can to remove this evil and its devastation from our lives, our homes, our communities, and our country.
